This point-and-click adventure game is entirely hand-drawn with coloured pencils. There's lots of dialogue and it should be read at your own pace. It will take you between one and two hours to finish the game.

Fans of adventure games will like The Grey Rainbow a lot. It's an ode to magic, to an innocence we thought we'd lost and to a time when everything we did was filled with wonder. Open yourself and relax into this fairy-tale and realize that, what you thought was once lost, is but misplaced.

Of course, non-adventure game fans (if there are such ;) will most probably enjoy it too, so they should give it a try.

Start the game with no expectations. Relax, take it slow. Read all the dialogue. Solve the puzzles at your own pace. There's even a hint button within the game itself to help you if you're stuck.

And most of all - enjoy yourself!

Cool game

So another great game here the point and click is always nice, Its like its very own fantasy world here in this game and the art really plays off well of that aspect, Characters are unique in there own way, and the game plays well so nice work on this one

~X~

I absolutely adored this game! Love the art style and endearing characters, I also appreciate the little hints and the fact that it wasn't too challenging. Thank you for this whimsical little game :)

dang never seen this before cool

Wow... such a beautiful game... with a really touching story as well. Thank you.

Beautiful and magical game. I played it for the first time when I was a kid and has stayed with me forever since. Yesterday I decided to play it again after all these years and it brought me so much happiness and nostalgia.

Really thankful to have come across this fantasy world again. The characters are both innocent and interesting, and they help me remember that happiness resides in the little things, in the little details.
